Retail biodiesel station growth - trend is linear increase

I put together a graph based on the total number of retail sources of biodiesel being displayed on our interactive map over the past 8-9 months.

Note that the steady increase (red line) is pretty much spot on with a linear growth trend line (black line). The increase looks to be about 1 retail station per calendar day coming on board.

(Note that the total current number of stations on our map is the number in the map icon on our home page.)

Back to school, Next Brevard area order, Micro-reactor

Some odds and ends:

Interest is rising in making the next Brevard area end user biodiesel order. If you are new to wanting biodiesel in the area, send us an email and we'll get you on the list. Our last order ended up at $3.09/gallon delivered.

Brevard Biodiesel recently provided a presentation on biodiesel to Frank Leslie's Renewable Energy Course at FIT. Some photos from our presentation:

Here is a page at Oregon State University describing their Microreactor Biodiesel Project.
From their description:

The microreactor was designed, with the help of 
Goran Jovanovic, by this student team. The micro reactor 
was designed to be a plug flow reactor where two separate 
phase fluids react by diffusion. The reaction between 
the two fluids occurs at the interface. The microreactor 
is favorable over a traditional batch reactor because 
the small microchannels require significantly less time 
for diffusion.
